January 30, 2013


Mason Bennett’s tennis shoes served up some serious smell to win the 37th Annual National Odor-Eaters Rotten Sneaker Contest.
 
The smelliest sneakers at the 37th Annual National Odor-Eaters Rotten Sneaker Contest belonged to 16-year old Mason Bennett of Eagle River, AK, who netted $2,500 for his tennis shoes that had some serious funk.

The panel of experts in the Odor-Easters contest included NASA “Master Sniffer” George Aldrich, chemical specialist for NASA space missions, and Rachel Herz, Ph.D., a professor at Brown University and author of “The Scent of Desire” and “That’s Disgusting.”

Mason’s sneakers will be enshrined in the Odor-Eaters “Hall of Fumes” in Montpelier, VT. He also received an all-expense paid trip to New York City to see the Broadway show “The Lion King,” and a supply of Odor-Eaters products.

The Odor-Eaters Rotten Sneaker Contest is sponsored by Blistex, Inc.
